With all the original PU scopes and mounts sold over the years that were saved during the Soviet refurbs, why did they not save the base mounts? What became of them?
no they were notWell, a lot of the genuine bases recently available came out of Poland. Probably something in that.
As to most Russian refurb bases - probably melted down to make other things. Remember, during captured Kar98k refurbishment, the bayonets, and PROBABLY the sight hoods and rods were tossed into the smelter.
